Many people in the choice of watches will be entangled: in the end is to buy a "quartz watch" or "mechanical watch" good?
The following is divided into six points to explain to you, to ensure that you can understand the difference after reading, and you can rest assured to buy in the future.
01. Basic identification:
The most obvious difference is that the English logo of the two is different, quartz watch, English logo is Quartz, mechanical watch English logo is Automatic
02. Appearance difference:
The thickness of the quartz watch is thin, and the appearance design space is sufficient; the mechanical watch mostly represents the stable and high luxury atmosphere.
03. Time error:
Quartz watch error is small, generally within ± 5 seconds, compared to the mechanical watch, the time error is larger, the daily need to wear often, the day's error -4/ 6 seconds.
04. Process differences:
Quartz watch movement is the use of integrated circuits, simple structure, easy assembly. The power source of the mechanical watch is driven by the gear between the machinery, which is the highest model of human manual machinery.
05. Maintenance Cost
Quartz watch contains many small parts, high maintenance costs. Mechanical watch maintenance is more convenient, generally only need to replace some parts can be.
06. Service life
Quartz watch due to the circuit and the movement of the reason, the service life of up to only about 10 years, mechanical watch movement is generally metal, and do not rely on electronics, through the mechanical winding to drive, as long as often wear can continue for hundreds of years, many people will be the mechanical watch as a family heirs to the inheritance.
